I produce business, motivational and self-development audiobooks for authors. Just leave it with me and I’ll do it for you, saving you a lot of time and stress, while producing a high quality audiobook you’re really proud of.
So how does it work?
You send me your book and I’ll look over it and tell you if it’s going to work as an audiobook.
If it’s a good fit, and you want to go ahead, I comb through your script, making any light structural edits needed to tailor it for audio, noting any tricky pronunciations and, if you have them, incorporating notes from you about how you’d like it to be read.
I’ll either narrate your book myself or cast a narrator. I select up to three voice samples and you choose one. It may be possible for you, the author, to narrate, though that’s also dependent on location.
Once the book has been recorded, I listen through to make sure there are no errors, and then I edit and master the recording to ensure that your audio files meet the market’s technical requirements.
I deliver the files to you, named with the chapter titles, and you upload them, or I can upload your audiobook for you, creating your author account and taking care of all the book metadata. You can either go exclusively with Audible, or additionally, upload to other platforms.
I’ll provide you with a free audiogram which you can use to promote your audiobook, plus a marketing suggestion sheet to start you on your way to promoting your title – yay!
The process usually takes between 6-8 weeks.
How much does it cost?
The prices listed are for books of approximately 40,000 words.
Your book needs small changes, plus pronunciation notes, and similar small edits to make the book narration and the listener experience run smoothly = £150.
Your book needs all of the above, plus some light structural editing (perhaps it has graphs or images to illustrate certain points, for example) = £350.
Recording, audio editing, mastering and proofreading = £1,300.
Uploading your audiobook = £125 per site.
Shorter audiobooks are also becoming more popular. I offer price packages for audiobooks shorter than 35,000 words. If your book is longer, it will cost more to make. Please ask about these price packages.
A payment by instalments option may be available.
